What size would I wear? We sell wigs from several manufacturers and most of them
are average. There is an adjustment on the nape to tighten or loosen the wig. Many
people like to wear the wig looser than normal so that it is more comfortable. To
keep the wig from moving, toupee clips can be sewn in. Or if there is no hair on
the head to clip to, toupee tape can secure the piece.
Custom made Real hair wigs and Human hairpieces are measured to fit your head precisely,
they will still have an amount of adjustment to allow you to determine the most
comfortable position. As with our acrylic wig ranges all of our real human hair
wigs can have clips or tape added for additional security.
JUST WONDERING WHAT AVERAGE SIZE IT IS. COMPARED TO WHAT?
There are basically 3 sizes of wigs: Large, Average, and Petite. All the wigs are
adjustable, so average is a one size fits most type of size. It will fit anyone
except unusually large or small heads. The best way to judge your size is to compare
it to buying a hat.
HOW DO I PUT ON A WIG?
We have a clip available on the web site and a DVD available with a step-by-step
guide for you to look your best. If you do not put it on correctly, it may not seem
to fit, or it might feel awkward or uncomfortable. Sometimes we find that people
don’t pull them all the way down in the back or they pull them too far down in the
front, or sit them on top of their head–like they are wearing a hat–which isn’t
the correct way to put them on. Check out the video guide.
DO I HAVE TO STYLE THEM?
Synthetic wigs are all pre-styled so that all you need to do is just shake them
out and finger comb them through, a spritz with our spray conditioner really brings
the wig to life and allows you to finger style the wig and gives a natural look
and finish. Our real human hair wigs however are set on rollers at the factory,
they are not styled here in our salon. The style that you see in our Purely wigs
brochure will be as close as possible to the human hair wig that you will receive.
If you were to choose a Real Hair custom made wig then the styling is carried out
during the making of the wig and finished here with our specially trained hairdressing
With synthetic wigs the style stays even after you wash it, 100% human hair wigs
will need to be re-set or styled just as you would with your natural hair.
WHAT IS A SKIN TOP?
Questions about bases are also covered in the web clips, and also available in a
A skin top is a plastic looking scalp somewhat like a doll’s head, but more flexible.
Some are partial and have partings already made into the skin top that cannot be
changed. Some are full skin tops and can be parted anywhere.
WHAT IS A MONOFILAMENT-TOP?
Mono-top wigs are made of a thin silky transparent fabric with hairs individually
tied into it, making it look very natural and realistic. This can be parted in any
direction and is far more adaptable.
HOW LONG WILL MY WIG LAST?
A wig can last for a few months right up to several years. Just like shoes, it depends
on how well you treat them, and how often you wear them. On average a synthetic
wig will last between 3 – 6 months with constant wear. Human Hair wigs will last
on average up to 12 months. To prolong the life of your synthetic or real hair wig
it is essential to use the correct products on them, we have a custom made range
that will work with your wig and will ensure that it stays looking great for the
longest possible time.
